Hi all, I have been taking 10mg citalopram for almost 2 months now and I feel like I'm really starting to feel the benefits of it. People closest to me who know what I went through are really seeing a difference in me but annoyingly they are now starting to ask me when I'm going to stop taking the tablets and saying things like 'you don't want to rely on them forever!' I was just happy to not feel like the world was collapsing around me for a few weeks but now I'm wondering what if I DO have to rely on these drugs forever? The only side effects I have now are tiredness and some very annoying sexual side effects but both of these I can live with and the benefits currently outweigh the negatives for me. I'm happy to keep going im thinking for at least 6 months. I know it's probably a very personal thing but I guess my question is how long do people usually stay on it before trying to reduce and is it harder to come off the longer you have been taking it?! How do you know if you still need them or not?
